Should be sending them out towards mid July :) Not to worry though, everyone who has paid for a ticket is guaranteed entry as they are on the list!

That's good to hear :)

Travelling down on a daily basis as it's nearby (according to my mate who's doing the driving).

Hoping to pick up some gap fills for my Master System collection on the day too :)
Having sold 99.9% of my 1300+ collection of originals, I'm taking a bit of a back seat on the forum. I'll still do the front-of-house admin tasks as and when they're required but, for now, I'm enjoying my Xbox 360 time too much :)

Yeah the venue in Glossop is 21 miles from the Town Centre here according to the AA routeplanner so it shouldn't be too far from Warrington either :)

My family live in Glossop (Ok, Gamesley - it's the same for me but not for the snobs of Glossop apparently!).

If you get the train then come out of the train station, turn right and walk down the cobbles. There's usually a nice rank of private taxis outside the Norfolk pub.

Bit of an update for everyone. Tickets will be going out in the next couple of weeks! For all those who haven't bought one I thought I best let you know that there are only 100 tickets in total available and we have already sold more than half. So best bet is it get in there quick to avoid disappointment.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I have sent out the first batch of tickets today. So they should be with you all shortly. If it isn't then it means you haven't bought a ticket, so what are you reading this for! Get over to the Retro North site and book! :lol:

Mine's at a mate's house so it's safe.

Hey guys, thought you might be interested: http://www.rgcd.co.uk/news/

I'll see you there then. If RetroGamer UK *really* looks like his avatar I'll eat a PC in front of all present at the event.
